Hello eds, any interest in Luca torreira of Sampdoria from Liverpool?


{Ed002's Note - Everton were the Merseyside team who enquired about Lucas Torreira - not Liverpool.}

1.) 22 Feb 2018 15:32:15
Is he considered by Napoli as a replacement for Jorginho?

2.) 23 Feb 2018 05:00:11
I think Luca torriera is the kante of Serie A. Beastly little dynamite of a player. But of course as Ed002 has cleared it was everton and not us who enquired.
Would love him at LFC though.



05 Dec 2017 06:45:28
hi eds,
anything in the aubameyang rumours?
reading reports LFC could well sell studger, origi and ings and go for him?
if we sell all three doesn't sound bad but his wages might probably cut off any deal.


{Ed002's Note - Dortmund are willing to let Aubameyangadingdong go as they are sick of the backage. He has been offered to a couple of clubs and Liverpool might well be interested - but someone would need to make way from the first team - not the players you have listed. It is reasonable that Ings could get a loan and Origi may well want to stay in Germany in the summer. Aubameyangadingdong has been offered to an English side and an Italian side already. The Italian side see the price as high for the risk of disruption, and they are currently in turmoil. The English side is looking at someone else initially. Sturridge I don't know. But none of these are really starters. I would not rule it out but I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 05 Dec 2017 10:33:21
So sell three hard working squad players and sign a disruptive flake who will want to start ahead of our front 3? And that too for an obscene amount of money? No chance unless Salah leaves in the summer.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:36:32
Ed when you say someone would need to leave mate I take it would have to be the likes of Firmino, Couts, Mane etc?

{Ed002's Note - He would want to be a starter - so go figure.}

3.) 05 Dec 2017 10:48:27
A 4-2-3-1 with Mane, Firmino and Salah behind Aubameyang would be incredible. Don’t think it would be my priority though as the defence must be our first thought and with the goals we’re scoring is it really worth the disruption?

4.) 05 Dec 2017 11:20:29
If our "Transfer Committee" have half a brain between them they'll leave well alone but I'm not sure they have the half of a brain.

5.) 05 Dec 2017 11:57:40
Only way I’d see it possible for PEA to be in the first team would be to drop bobby into coutinho role once he’s on that plane to Barcelona.

6.) 05 Dec 2017 12:00:19
Yeah right. wasnt Sadio Mane also seen as disruptive? He had prior disciplinary issue with Koeman. Looks what happen. We are not talking about some random striker. We are talking about most prolific striker last season in whole Europe. He is in bracket Lewandowski, Suarez, Kane. So please wise up and talk sense when you guys write as if he is another striker like Balloteli.

7.) 05 Dec 2017 12:29:42
There is a difference between a player who is disruptive because he doesn't fully apply himself and it gets on people's nerves, and one who just sacks off full games cause he wants to go out on the lash with his mates. He is more of a problem for squads than balotelli is, that's why he's discussed like balotelli by anyone who knows the first thing about him.

8.) 05 Dec 2017 13:37:36
Bottom line is klopp knows him. If he wants to sign him he will have confidence that can manage any issues and find a place for him in the starting 11. If he is a disruptive force surely Klopp will let it be known to the transfer folks to stay away. Nothing to worry about at all folks.

9.) 05 Dec 2017 13:46:31
Ed002 mate. which clubs (to the best of your knowledge) are currently showing any interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - See above - I have said that they have spoken to a couple of clubs - and that is it at the moment.}

10.) 05 Dec 2017 14:04:56
I was at the recent Dortmund v Bayern game and kept a beady eye on Aubameyang as i was keen to see how good he was. What a let down. He was a passenger for the whole game and did nothing, with Robben stealing the show. Admittedly, this is a single game, against Bayern and i had been sampling the local beers for most of the day, but from that showing, i wouldn't want him. On a side note, 83,503 people singing you'll never walk alone is truly a wonderful experience. especially with beer.

11.) 05 Dec 2017 18:28:20
Ed is there any truth that where looking for a striker Bec firmino is guna play coutino role when he leaves?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for strikers in January. The club is doing just great going forward and I doubt even Klopp would be stupid enough to screw that up right now.}

12.) 05 Dec 2017 19:10:54
Thanks Ed way I’d read it seemed more about summer plans when coutino leaves.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty certain Liverpool are not making plans like that right now.}

13.) 06 Dec 2017 01:43:15
Am I wrong to think this would be a poor move for the club?



12 Aug 2017 03:27:35
Hi Ed's, a very good morning.
Would Barcelona be willing to include sergi Roberto in a deal for pipco? Is he on the surplus list? More importantly would the forces at liverpool be interested in player+cash kind of deal?
Thank-you for you kindness in this unkind transfer window.


{Ed002's Note - He is not on the surplus list but the clubs interested in him have had little luck getting Barcelona to talk. Liverpool has shown no interest to date.}

1.) 12 Aug 2017 09:15:07
Pipe dream unfortunately. After Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, Pique and Alba I would say Roberto is probably the next best they have. He is a really classy midfielder and not a bad right back either.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:29:44
I get a feeling that any player on Barca's surplus list to be included in a deal would be an above average yet nothing special player, which makes the whole idea of it unappealing.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:30:45
That team is slim pickings IMO apart from top two and pique.
Maybe Gomes and Ter Stegen + 80million and then we could maybe talk.

I also find it hard to believe that they wouldn't come back.
Real probably will if not as Phil is knocking on the door of best in CAM in world for me. A season in champions league and people start to take seriously.

Question for Ed02: Have Liverpool been aggressive enough in pursuit of players this transfer window? Do you think if we'd have put money where our mouth is we could've got things do for targets?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has gone about the transfers in the entirely wrong way - but it is nothing about money.}

4.) 12 Aug 2017 10:32:18
Did I just read "has Liverpool been aggressive enough this window? "
Only way they could have been more aggressive is if VVD and NK where bundled into the boot of Klopps BMW and driven to Melwood.

{Ed002's Note - He has a KR200 - there is only room for one of them. }

5.) 12 Aug 2017 10:41:17
Should have looked outside the club for a sporting director promoting from within where a culture of incompetance has been prevelant for years just breeds more err incompetance . we have seen more of the same this transfer window. they should burn that rick parry guide to doing transfers.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:39
Why majorly weaken our team selling a player with years of contract when we can keep him, get a good year out of him and sell him for AT LEAST the same price judging by how transfers are rising year by year. its the same as Liepzig (why have no want or need to sell the player and we don't need the money) .

7.) 12 Aug 2017 13:38:16
8;minutes and our defence exposed. We are such a good team, something really needs to be done with our defence. Vvd as soon as. It'll be embarrassing but not as embarrassing as losing to mediocre teams.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 14:03:41
Ed, sorry couldn't find new post icon. Any idea why we didn't move for Joe Hart? It seems mad as we were the only team at the top he could've gone to bar city. He is surely an upgrade on what we currently have.

{Ed001's Note - because he is crap.}

9.) 12 Aug 2017 14:19:53
Totally agree Eds. The only reason he doesn't get called out on his mistakes is 'cause he's English.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 14:22:12
Didn't Torinos owner come out and say he didn't expect an England goalkeeper to make so many mistakes? Says it all really.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 14:44:44
Fair enough guys. I have to disagree with Steve wonder, England gks have had a hard time over last ten years, Carson Robinson and the other fella all made one mistake and we're dropped forever. I have always felt Hart was over rated but rest of country seemed to disagree. Until the euros where he was crap. What Hart does well is organise and control defence and I feel that is what we are lacking. But I buy that he has lost it.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 17:41:24
Nah it seems like he does superred but he just shouts loudly. Literally I think that is his only trick. Shouting and chest thumping.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 19:09:14
Sergi roberto is such a tidy passer, If we were to take him i would want him in CM, not being put as a rb like Barcelona shifted him out. Would still rather keep couts though.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 20:17:49
Dear Jurgen. we're going to take your star player and you can have anyone off our surplus list.

Yeh right!

15.) 12 Aug 2017 22:37:01
Under FSG, we haven't taken any surplus players as part of big money transfers out. I don't know if FSG think the supporters see such a scenario as Liverpool accepting cast-offs, but the sale of Torres, Sterling and Suarez didn't bring back any players from Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona.

I suspect it will be the case this time too. Why should Liverpool buy players who we don't need?

16.) 13 Aug 2017 07:04:17
@ superred91

losing to mediocre teams?

Last time I checked 3-3 was not a losing score line.

17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:28:23
Red, it sure felt like it was a loss .

18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:01:52
Fair point resend but we were losing 2.1 when I wrote that post and wasn't necessarily talking about watford. Was talking about defence in general.

Yeah, again I thought there were tonnes of positives from watford game.

19.) 14 Aug 2017 14:37:46
If Barcelona want coutinio and they want to offer a player or two in the deal then it has to be one of their top players. Next time they offer rahifina we should send em markovic in no 10 shirt. Don't think the part exchange is going to happen is it? Just psper talk. The first two offers were cash.

I think if we were to do a swap it has to be iniesta. If it truly is a iniesta replacement (pc) then we'll take the replaced player. The fact is, they just want the world's best south America players.



01 Jun 2017 11:02:35
So Mr. Peter moore is the new CEO.
Does it mean we can expect some Transfers FIFA style? I'd buy bale, one future player that goes 97 and one bonucci as i and pretty sure everyone else does when starting with a new FIFA season :P.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:13:53
I think that spending large amounts of money on a player has become unfashionable in many fans' eyes. Notably, clubs like City, PSG and the Chinese teams (in particular) are not well-respected amongst football supporters, and as such, a lot would like to see disassociation from these teams in the way that their club conducts its transfer business.

Add to that, there is a shared opinion now that there's something quite noble about spending less money on a player who turns out to be a world beater. Solanke is a perfect example, if he turns out to be a "30 goal a season striker" a lot of fans will respect the fact he cost not a lot and will want their club to do the same. At least that's how I see it. So with regard to Salah, a lot of supporters will be thinking there is some rough diamond out there, who is younger and cheaper. It's a no win situation, because if a club only buys cheap players and those players do not perform, the fans get on the owner's back.



29 Jun 2015 04:49:45
Have city given up on sterling eds? i mean they could buy delph or probably any player they want if it was English quota they were looking at? it has gone rather quiet.


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 29 Jun 2015 09:22:36
We'll probably hear more after July 1st. That date seems to be getting banded about a bit on here for FFP reasons or something.

2.) 29 Jun 2015 10:44:52
What has Delph got to do with Sterling? Just because he's English? I'd say they'd prefer players that are actually good though, they don't need more Rodwells & Sinclairs.

I think we can very easily win next five games

Soto home- should be routine. they won't have Ings so i think that hurts them too.

Chelsea home- EFL cup but since its home we should win. Tough game this though i don't see any team resting players. both would want to win. we need all trophies this season. the big ones and the small ones

Chelsea away - tricky game this one. But this will probably be in our favour, If we win the EFL game, i expect Sarri to attack us and that should help us a lot. If Chelsea play like Chelsea it can be Chelsea wining. Also third straight game in week and Chelsea lack a bench.

Napoli away- Napoli are weird they won against lazio fiorentina and ac milan and were dreadful against sampdoria! they are also leaking goals which is good for us. I see three points at the naples and I think we will get them. might be a very close game though.

Mancity home- I for one like that Pep won't sit back against us. This has been the best EPL fixture since 2012- Liverpool vs mancity . But first time Liverpool are no more the underdogs in this match. This should be a spectacle and i think LFC attack will be superior to city's and hence the three points.

That would make it 11 out of 11 I thinks that is a world record.

and then we have some easy games in october so we could extend that winning run. I am excited, this season so different.


1.) 20 Sep 2018 06:30:47
I think Man City won 14 games on the bounce last season.

2.) 20 Sep 2018 06:35:17
Great post that mate, I 100% agree. Napoli away concerns me somewhat but I'm still confident we'll do them and the rest.

3.) 20 Sep 2018 08:01:27
Mystic meg post can stand them sorry!
Every time one goes up it comes back to haunt us so one game at a time plz!

4.) 20 Sep 2018 08:41:53
One game at a time boys. Saints could be difficult if we overlook them in any way.

5.) 20 Sep 2018 08:41:55
I'm not worried about Napoli purely because I don't think it will matter. I don't see them getting points from Anfield, and I very much doubt that Red Star Belgrade can cost us any points. That means that as long as we equal their result against PSG (and I suspect we may have already bettered it) losing away to Napoli won't factor into anything except finishing first or second - which is hardly a guarentee of good things these days. Not that I don't want us to secure everything early and win every game, let some players rest and rotate in dead rubbers if nothing else, but it won't worry me if we draw or even lose in Italy.

6.) 20 Sep 2018 08:48:07
Every game is winnable and we have shown we can beat any team on our day. However each game should be treated as a Cup final and I am looking no further than Southampton.

One game at a time, asses the result, then move on to the next one.

7.) 20 Sep 2018 10:00:43
“Soto home- should be routine“

JINX! There’s no such thing as a “routine” game in the premier league and our recent history against Southampton is nothing to write home against.

8.) 20 Sep 2018 09:57:03
For EFL, I expect Sturridge, Shaqiri, Fabinho, Matip, Moreno, Clyne to start. If Lallana is fit, he might get a chance. With games coming thick and thin and most importantly all are vital (6 pointer games), IMO we need to rest some of our starting 11. They will be burn out before City.

9.) 20 Sep 2018 10:11:32
Once people start taking it for granted that we'll win games the wheels fall off. Let's see the abuse levels when we do finally draw or lose a game.

10.) 20 Sep 2018 10:14:41
All are winnable, but at best I would guess the likelihood of any one win comes in at maybe 60% on average. That would make winning them extremely unlikely as if my memory of basic stats serves me right it would only be about 10% chance of coming in with 5 out of 5.

Of course there are plenty that would tear my arbitrary choice of 60% apart, but the point is, the likelihood of one win is not the same as winning all of them. Let’s take it one game at a time.

11.) 20 Sep 2018 11:04:59
I'm certainly very excited about the City game in particular, as it will be my first time visiting Anfield since supporting them as a kid in the late 80s. Been planning this trip to UK for many years, and I'm very fortunate it's coincided with a time when our team is looking so strong. Really really looking forward to it. :)

12.) 20 Sep 2018 12:23:23
i call it belief. In a long time can a liverpool fan say all these 5 games are winnable. Any other season we'd be looking to win 3 draw 1 and lose 1 as best case and be happy. Not this season. All these games are perfectly winnable and we should believe in the team and push them towards it, be positive be it this forum or any, anfield or any. This team is special and we need to finally stop doubting and start expecting.

13.) 20 Sep 2018 13:06:22
Once again I agree ak mate.

Heroin, I hope and Im sure you'll have a fantastic time mate, enjoy you lucky bugger ;) you'll get to see us smash the living daylights out of them! What better game to go to eh? :) .

14.) 20 Sep 2018 14:19:04
Of course they are winnable games but there’s no such thing as a “routine” win in the premier league. It will be hard work, lots of preparation and training.

We will have to match them for preparation, attitude, professionalism and if we do that we are favourites.

15.) 20 Sep 2018 16:42:33
Every game is winnable. We have a team capable of beating them all in our group. Paris away is going to be a big atmosphere as will napoli.

We can't underestimate anyone though. I know the players won't but we fans are sometimes guilty of it.

16.) 20 Sep 2018 16:42:33

19 Sep 2018 09:57:47
Great team win yesterday. Please hand Milner a lifetime contract and a lots of Ribena supplies. Also the managing role after Klopp. The guy is the boss.




17 Sep 2018 07:25:43
I know this might be very early days in the season but any one else worried about our finishing? to many chances not converted? I mean on the basis of our play we should have won all games very easily. even in the west ham game we missed a lot of chances.
Cannot complain we are 5 out of 5 and that is the first time it has been done in premier league and it could be just players getting back into that groove and it will surely improve. But i think we are missing too many good chances at the moment. Early days may be we will sort it out by week 7 or 8.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 07:34:41
It doesn't matter to me to be honest mate, I'd be happy with 1-0 wins all season, we're winning and that's the most important thing.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 07:43:23
Well we are good i belive. If Keita reaches levels expected, we will have even more chances lol.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 07:47:58
I think the team's chemistry and finishing is going to get better over the next few games. A lot of them didn't play together in preseason. They just came back from intl break for spurs game.

With now a run of games (one every 3-4 days) we should see better in terms of interplay and finishing.

Although I agree with Salah, I'd take 1-0 wins all day.

4.) 17 Sep 2018 08:11:41
Salah was missing 4 out of 5 chances early last season too. Nothing to see here IMO.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. People have forgotten how he started the season.}

5.) 17 Sep 2018 08:19:29
not worried because we are winning games. But i was watching the spurs game and the score line was not a fair reflection of how well we played and chances we did create. and then when there was a penalty call at the end i just got thinking we might rue the chances we missed. But it was all good as we won.
yes i agree it is very early days. But since our front three are same i was expecting may more i think. It will get more cohesive as we go ahead.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 09:31:12
Im not worried about our finishing as we saw last season when on form just how clinical we can be.

its comforting to know that we have played 5 won 5 knowing that we are yet to reach our best.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 09:48:47
Our front three has proven they are goal scorers. it’s just early in the season and taking a bit of time to click into top gear. I would be far more worried if we weren’t creating chances, or leaking goals at the back, I’m pretty sure the conversion rates will improve.

8.) 17 Sep 2018 11:33:33
I think we have to take solace in the fact that 2 of the so called best defenders in the premier league in Toby and Vertonghen were absolutely terrified of our front three. You could see it Everytime Salah or Mane got the ball in particular the panic was obvious.
If we can do that to them then that bodes well for us against the rest. The finishing will come just as it did last season.

9.) 17 Sep 2018 11:29:20
Goal difference would certainly play a big part in deciding the title this season. So 1-0 won’t be good enough if you want to win it. Our strength lies in all our attack and goals. Salah and Mane are miles apart mentally. If they don’t stick together then we are missing more chances!

10.) 17 Sep 2018 11:33:48
We are not yet at full throttle

Once we gear up in the next few weeks then watch us fly

If we can avoid serious injuries we are in for one hell of a season.

11.) 17 Sep 2018 12:26:12
‘Goal difference will certainly play a big part? ’

It’s only played a big part twice in the last 50 years or so Perception. that’s a big call mate, and I don’t think we should be setting our strategy in September to be playing for goal difference just yet!

12.) 17 Sep 2018 12:42:48
Sure Harry BUT if we go and win every game 1-0, it can't be argued, we'd win the league lol I know we won't win every game but you know what I'm saying. Either way, the league is already ours mate just believe and the team will do the rest. We'll smash it! They may as well hand us the trophy now! :) hope you're well Harry mate.

13.) 17 Sep 2018 12:49:33
Goal difference will be irrelevant if we win every game 1-0, Harry, unless anoth team wins every match as well.

14.) 17 Sep 2018 13:38:38
Which would be impossible since we have to play each team twice, so only 1 team could ever finish the season winning every game. Plus, to claim after 5 games that goal difference will essentially decide the title (it either does or it doesn't, there's no grey area with this one! ) is one of the boldest claims I've seen on here! Get a fiver on it Harry, you'll clean up.

15.) 17 Sep 2018 14:49:47
It’s a bit silly to be talking about goal difference at this point but we have a goal difference of +9 after 5 games with 3 of those games away from home against Palace, Leicester and Spurs.
Chelsea are +10 and City +11.
We’ve had the more difficult games in my opinion as other than Arsenal (under a new manager and just trying to find their feet) neither City nor Chelsea have played teams that you would expect to give them a game yet both have struggled at times.
I’d say we are doing just fine.

16.) 17 Sep 2018 16:07:30
5 wins out of 5. No, I’m not worried 🤝.

17.) 17 Sep 2018 16:21:11
Exactly AussieMark, I remember screaming at my TV in a few of the early games last season because Salah missed some real easy chances.
Then he goes and scores 40 goals. I'd imagine he'll still hit 20 goals in the league this season, he's handed too many chances not too, you know?



31 Aug 2018 07:07:46
I am only worried about Napoli. They are a great group of players and now with one of the worlds best manager there they are tough opposition. Also Naples is a tough place to go.

PSG - cake walk at anfield esp as they have tuchel.
RSB- don't know much about them but mane and keita do. historic stadium though. but we should get 6 points against them.


1.) 31 Aug 2018 07:16:09
I am confident that if we play to our ability we should get out of that group, but no teams are to be underestimated.

2.) 31 Aug 2018 07:36:10
Relatively short hops those away games as well, no bonkers trips to Turkey or deepest Ukraine!

3.) 31 Aug 2018 08:04:57
PSG cake walk 😂😂. Have you seen their team? Mbappe 😂😂 Neymar, Cavani, Verratti and many many more.

4.) 31 Aug 2018 08:12:29
Ancelloti to is really not a great manager

Wonder how Napoli and PSG feel about having to play LFC

We are back at the top table and we can compete with anyone in the competition

We are one of half a dozen sides with a realistic chance of winning the competition

Bring it on.

Respect the opposition but fear no one. We are Liverpool.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 08:41:40
Why do Keita and Mane know a lot more than Red Star Belgrade?

6.) 31 Aug 2018 08:42:17
Akrubbish, Red Star Belgrade are not where Mane and Keita came from that was RBS in Austria.

7.) 31 Aug 2018 09:06:32
Ancelotti not a great manager? His track record begs to differ. I love Klopp to bits but I wish his career haul of trophies was as good as Ancelotti's.

8.) 31 Aug 2018 09:10:31
Think you're getting mixed up between Red Star and Red Bull, akrubbish.

Red Star is a team from Serbia that won the European cup in 1987 and 1991 but was torn apart due to the Yugoslavian war that began in 1992. They're only just managing to build themselves back up again from nothing. I read somewhere they used to get 100,000 fans in their stadium which got nicknamed the Maracana, because they 'used to play like Brazil', and had several stars that went to play for other top European teams across the continent when they disbanded. I'd always heard of them, but didn't know much about their story because of my age when everything happened. The fact that they are getting back now is on face value, a nice story of redemption, but I don't know the ins and outs.

Their stadium now holds 50,000 but they only get an average attendance of 5000 now. Hopefully games against some of Europes football royalty will inspire some fans to return the place their parents and grand parents used to love and hopefully, they are a partisan crowd (no pun intended) who don't give Mane and Keita anything other than football to think of (as Serbians have recently got a reputation for) . I'm intrigued.

{Ed001's Note - didn't they win the last European Cup before its rebranding as Champions League? 1991 I think?}

Napoli is not the same without Jorginho ( This is for people who are interested in knowing Napoli ) although they have signe Ruiz but they are missing Jorginho to bits. They are playing Hamsik at the base just like Gerrard did it for us in his final years. They are still a very good team plays brilliant attacking football. At home they are very hard to beat. It won’t be a cake walk.
PSG are a team with super stars ( Most of them are match winners ) .

Both these teams could relax in the league and focus compeltlty on the CL. While our fixture list are scary!

Veratti and buffon out the first game. Bonus.

11.) 31 Aug 2018 09:39:18
They may have done Ed, either then or the year after. I thought Marseille were the first Champions League winners in 1993, but I may well be wrong.

Their story is a crazy one which just shows how football means absolutely nothing in terms of life and humanity. From being top of the world one minute to having players and fans on opposing sides of a genocidal conflict they had no choice in the next. It's almost unimaginable. I imagine some of their old fans (depending on how many are left) will be quite emotional at having reached the top table again.

{Ed001's Note - is that the year Marseille fixed it?

It is an amazing story. Defo one worthy of a book, rather than an article.}

Apologies Akrubbish that didn't mean to come across as AKRUBBISH like I was taking a dig at you must of corrected on my PC to that.

Lol some cons of the name there! .
yep i totally confused red star belgrade with red bull salzburg! apologies.
i knew the stadium macarena it was historic and there are two belgrade clubs, partizan and red star -- one of the most bitter rivalry in football.

as for PSG cake walk, i was talking at anfield, we will murder them just like we murdered real Madrid back in 2009.

Naples is a tough trip and i think they won't be easy at anfield either because they are a gritty team.

14.) 31 Aug 2018 11:35:56
Super interesting stuff Angry Bardzo. Good posts my man.

15.) 31 Aug 2018 11:49:12
I have no idea of the circumstances regarding Marseille, ed. My knowledge stops at a bit of pub quiz trivia I’m afraid. You’ll have to educate me on that one!

Maybe if I get the time and inclination I’ll be able to get some proper research done and write something up on it. It’s a fascinating story. Unfortunately with the way UEFA is set up, I doubt they’ll get any further up the chain than say Shakhtar have managed. Saying that, there’s another club Struggling under the weight of politics.

{Ed001's Note - ah Marseille and Bernard Tapie is another deserving of a book mate. They got found to have been match fixing and I believe they were stripped of the title.}

16.) 31 Aug 2018 13:39:19
Cheers Davey, I thought it was worth posting about. Not your average football story.

Maybe when your old and grizzled you can find the time to write a compendium of football oddities Ed and put all these stories in. That would definitely be worth a read.

{Ed001's Note - I am going to start a new series on sporting villains soon, so Tapie will defo find his way into that one.}

17.) 31 Aug 2018 14:22:07
Good stuff. I shall look forward to it.

{Ed001's Note - cheers for reminding me of his existence as I had forgotten to put him on the list for villains to write about.}

The Red Star V Marseille European Cup final in 1991 was probably one of the worst football matches ever played. Anti-football at it's, erm, finest played by Red Star against a much better Marseille team (on paper) . Went to pens and Marseille blew it - probably knackered after having the ball for 120mins.

Hi eds. do you thinks that the English transfer window closing sooner has affected the overall summer window. Even big clubs outside England have not done much since the window closed for England. Of course transfers have happened every day, but no big transfers have come about.
Does EPL have such dominance over transfer activities throughout europe?


{Ed001's Note - that is nothing to do with England. That is more about how Neymar has priced every one out of the market.}

1.) 30 Aug 2018 08:25:15
Do you get the feeling neymar is going to price everyone out of the market next season as well when real pay stupid money for him.

{Ed001's Note - most likely. It has completely altered the market.}

2.) 30 Aug 2018 09:25:36
Yes Coz English clubs receive more money from TV and commercials than any other clubs across Europe. The relegated clubs in England gets paid more money than 4th placed clubs in Germany and Spain!

3.) 30 Aug 2018 09:45:04
I don't think real will buy Neymar at all! I think Neymar has dug himself a hole he won't be getting out of. If some players work for real Madrid this season i am pretty sure they will skip over Neymar next season and add other targets.
i get it madrid donot change, they will pay like they always have but it seems they are ready to relax a bit. I see Barcelona dominating next two three seaosns.
Of course that's just my thinking. they might buy him in Jan!

4.) 30 Aug 2018 09:45:18
Neymar will get another big transfer but that boys on the down curve of his career in my opinion, doesn't look that special to me. To much pissing about with transfers and social media, not got the dedication to ever be a true great. Look at his reaction when that young lad did him at the five a side tournament, had to run him into the barrier, Ronaldinho would of smiled and clapped IMO.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 10:24:43
Not sure there's anything to like, or even admire about Neymar, RTID. That clip (albeit 24 seconds not in any particular form of context clip) just shows why he deserves no respect or support. He knows he did wrong there.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 11:12:35
if madrid have their heads right theyd bid for Mbappe not Neymar!

7.) 30 Aug 2018 11:26:04
Players are going to just start signing 3 year deals and walking at the end.

8.) 30 Aug 2018 11:38:36
The world record transfer seemed to go up in small increments over the last few decades especially when you consider inflation. PSG doubling that record was ridiculous and completely screwed up the market. I don’t see how it’s sustainable.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 20:15:57
That's what happens when countries own football clubs.

id say start studger, he looks in form and there has been a different vibe about him in the pre-season and has scored few goals too.
Can start and give way to bobby around the 70 minute mark if it is required. Bobby i feel needs to keep it simple and smart. He has a very good squad all around him and he can feel free to be the authoritative striker now. doesn't have to drop that much, unless its to win possession back.

Hi ed002, Has the asking price increased as to what was originally reported in the media the deal was done for?
For me its remains a mystery as to why no one has yet put in a credible bid of for his services. he is a genuinely good player that can really help some of the top clubs right now. Say some one like Juventus and even Madrid.


{Ed002's Note - The other clubs approach did not see the value in Fekir at the asking price, or did not have space in their squads for the player. Real Madrid were one of the sides that were approached as they had previously shown interest. However the player would not be guaranteed game time there and they have a two year plan to completely refresh the squad and had other attacking midfield options on their list - and they opted to purchase one of those this summer in any case. Juventus never enquired after Fekir.}

i call it belief. In a long time can a liverpool fan say all these 5 games are winnable. Any other season we'd be looking to win 3 draw 1 and lose 1 as best case and be happy. Not this season. All these games are perfectly winnable and we should believe in the team and push them towards it, be positive be it this forum or any, anfield or any. This team is special and we need to finally stop doubting and start expecting.

His knees were not medically compliant. 60 million pounds and he won't be starting ahead of either mane or salah and we don't play with an attacking mid. made sense to buy shaqiri and we did.

OP lol what? how is he at fault when the mids didn't do the defensive work and his option was to tackle and he did so with aplomb? he is a very good defender. and he is only going to improve with VVD. Fans can't rave about their players now?
they call lingaard the next ronaldo at some club!
